'nother Nano question

How do I erase an itune from my Nano if it isn't on my computer. I erased the itune from my library, but it is still on my Nano? what did I do wrong?
Warren, there's a preference in iTunes that allows for automatic updates when your iPod is connected. With that turned on it'll add and erase songs from your iPod when you plug it in according to the changes you've made to your iTunes library. I think you can also do it manually once your iPod is connected, although I've never tried it myself. I know older versions of iTunes allowed you to do this, but I don't know iTunes 7 will.

Are you on a Mac or PC?
cool :)
Warren ..... speaking as someone who has no idea what a Nano is, I would slap it....
iTunes software sucks. It is one of the most user unfriendly POS programs out there. I think I mastered Adobe Photoshop quicker than the iTunes.

In any case, I set the iTunes preference to Manual updates. This way I don't keep all the junk on my PC and whatever I upload I delete afterwards from the hard drive. The manual setting is the only way(I think) to delete songs from iPod. But be careful when you change from automatic update setting to fully manual. It may refresh your iPod. Also, do a google search on ipod programs. I think there may be free versions of non-apple software that may have better features and is more user friendly.
You mastered Photoshop quicker than you did iTunes? That would make you either a Photoshop genius or an iTunes retard.

I've been a Photoshop retoucher/illustrator in the entertainment industry for over 10 years and I'd say I'm far from mastering my craft or Photoshop. Photoshop is the only reason I can even participate in this hobby and afford to buy these fancy schmancy tube dealies or gi-mongous wooden speaker whatchamahoochies.

On average I'm pushing pixels via Photoshop 50-80 hours a week for mom and pop shops like CBS/Paramount and Sony, and I still learn something new every time I perform a digital boob job, a binary face lift or when I turn a lo-rez spread ad into hi-rez finished art so a printer can make sure whats-her-name's mug'n butt will appear all young and fresh when it's committed to the ol' Gutenberg.

That damn CS2 humbles me every day. I can't wait for CS3. With iTunes I just care about managing tunes and getting songs on that little white and silver gizmo so I can listen to them while I'm running on my hamster treadmill.

Yeah, I'd definitely say I'm losing the battle for mastery of the digital arts. So does that make me a nano moron? Maybe. But, I can live with that, heheh.
thanks Gunbei! I am glad you took my comments seriously and replied. I am honored!

I've been designing GUIs for computers for more than 20 years and would like to know what it is about iTunes that upsets you so.

As for Photoshop, I have to agree with Gunbei. This is a hugely powerful program with many complex functions that take a while to find, let alone master. I haven't yet made it to CS2 because someone here registered the licenced copy we own and I can't run it on my box. Not that I need the features it has - Photoshop is intricate enough.

My hat is off to you.

That's right buddy, you can count on me for earth-shattering seriousness! ;•)
iTunes (Windows) is very easy to set up and use for it's most basic functions, on a single ipod and single computer. I have found it very hard to figure out how to do non-standard things, such as move a database from built-in drive to external drive, and have it be recognized, OR, to manage multiple iPods with drastically differing capacity.

Some people have experience iTunes as easy to use, I think because they have stuck to the most basic functions.

I would not describe it as overall very badly designed; just designed with an extremely heavy bias to the most basic functionality. It does offer the power user more headaches than should be required.
